TERROIR / SOIL
Escourt and Glen Rosa
VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS:
The vines are grown along the mountain slopes of Stellenbosch in a combination of Escourt and Glen Rosa soils. Located just 20km from the coast, the vineyard benefits from a cooling Atlantic Ocean breeze. Thanks to the moderate temperatures the grapes ripen slowly and evenly for enhanced quality.
The grapes were hand-harvested from three selected vineyard blocks between 18.5° and 19.5°C using 10kg lug boxes. The grapes were hand-sorted and gently, whole-bunch pressed. The free-run juice from each varietal was separately fermented in stainless-steel tanks and 10% in 400L French oak barrels. Secondary fermentation and maturation took place on the lees in the bottle for an extraordinary 96 months. After Riddling it was disgorged and zero dosage was added. A production limited to 3478 bottles were crafted for an exclusive release.
